Deconstruction of a jab pad

Drawings of jab pads in Oil pastel on paper and raised on thin cardboard.

Jab pads are used for boxing training, the trainer puts one pad on each hand and the boxer strikes out at the pads developing combinations of punches whilst developing fitness.
This jab pad has been deconstructed and as it was broken down I drew it in different stages of its decomposition.
